This record was the follow up to The Byrds' country-influenced album "Sweetheart of the Rodeo." This record was appropriately named, as it was a little country, a little psychedelic; it has two different personalities. The band's lineup had also changed: founding member Roger McGuinn on guitar/vocals, session player Clarence White on guitar, Gene Parsons (no relation to Gram Parsons) on drums and John York on bass (Chris Hillman had departed to join the Flying Burrito Brothers).
